Isn't that why NT5 is being released as Windows 2000? The marketing guys
decided that it was best to force the use of "Windows" for all the
different OS's so that everyone would be forced to acknowledge the
trademark and ensure Microsoft visibility. As it stands you could write a
book about NT and not mention microsoft at all.
